“Pick Of The Patch” contemporary pumpkin painting


Pick Of The Patch
Watercolor on hot press paper
6 x 8 inches unframed

Our plein air group went to visit a local farm that’s known for its pumpkins. Last year I rode the hay bale trailer out to the field to paint a pumpkin landscape. I’ll share that painting in a future post. This year I stayed closer to the barn where lines of pumpkins were laid out for easy picking. I was intrigued by the texture of the green on orange pumpkins, and chose this particular pumpkin to paint because of the texture and the cascading dry vine on its stem. Here are some photos of this painting in progress:








Some close-up photos of the pumpkin texture — isn’t it cool?!



Happy Autumn!!
